Storyline

The characters of the fairy-tale absolutely refuses to do the tale in the same old way. Instead Little Red Riding Hood is transformed to the hottest singer in town, the wolf becomes The Wolf and grandma turns into a man chaser. Written by Reidar Lyng <groucho@phc.chalmers.se>

Was Benny Hill Watching?
19 August 2005 | by W.B.See all my reviews

I second the comments about this influential cartoon and its effect on the course of animation. But there's one question unanswered, and that's: Did this formula begun with this cartoon and continuing (with Avery, at least) to the end of the 1940's play a role, however indirectly, in the future development of Benny Hill's show after, say, 1980? If one sees the early Hill's Angels numbers, especially the juxtaposition of dancers gyrating and men's various reactions, one can see many similarities; alas, there was none of the relative subtlety and wit for which Avery was most famous. And interesting that both Avery and Hill have been targeted in later years for supposedly being "politically incorrect." Think about it . . .
